Every day make up products

Hi all,
How are you all doing? Now that I’m on maternity leave I have a bit more time to blog 🙂 Today I wanted to share my everyday make up products

Products

First I would normally use a toner which is not featured above to clean my face and get all that last dirt off my face. Then I would use my Sk2 lotion to pat into my skin followed by Olay complete for sensitive skin moisturing lotion. I have been using this one for years and really love how it absorbs into the skin and doesn’t feel oily or leave my skin dry.

My Go-to foundation at the moment is Max factor miracle match blur and nourish foundation in medium followed by my Maybelline age rewind concealer in medium. I love this concealer and have repurchased this product many times as I can’t find anything else that does the job of hiding undereye bags and other imperfections.

I also use a lip balm and this one is from Japan. For my eyebrows I didn’t used to fill them in but eyebrows definitely define a face so I have been using this Elf duo one and the cream one actually does a good job and blends into my brows nicely but I think I will have to try some other ones to see what else is out there.

For my eyes I use this Wet n Wild palette in Petal pusher – ever since I bought it in the states it has been my go to look the ones that have hit pan you can see are my go to colors one is a mauve kind of color and then I smoke it out with the darker purple. I use the kiss me eyeliner from Japan – they have the best eyeliners – they are waterproof and they glide on nicely and then I finish with curling my eyes with the Heroine masacara that is also waterproof. I have been using both of these products for years and if anyone goes back to Japan I try and get them to repurchase them for me 🙂

So that’s about it – sometimes I will whack some blush on but I hardly contour or highlight my face. Especially with my pregnancy coming to an end I tend to stay indoors for most of my week and only put on makeup when I’m heading out.

Hope you are all having a great week. Let me know any holy grail products I should try 🙂

New products

Hi all,

At our drugstore in Australia – Priceline there was a 40% sale on all cosmetics. There was a tonne of people there and I managed to pick up this Essence eyeliner for about $2.50 and this Maybelline Babylips in Berry for $2.40.

Maybelline baby lips

The color payoff for the Berry lips is quite good. It’s like a tinted color balm for the lips and the Essence eyeliner is surprisingly quite good as well.

 

Leather jacket and polka dress

Hi all,

Been hunting around for a leather jacket especially since the weather is starting to cool down. I think it will be a versatile piece. So tried this one on.

The lining is pretty cool with a paisley like pattern.

Just received this in my email! I can finally try Revlon lip butters! Though not sure how much this is going to cost me!

Hope you all have a happy weekend! Anyone tried the lip butters and which do you recommend?

Mascara review

Hi all,

I will be reviewing 3 different mascaras and show my favourite mascara.

Rimmel 123 adjustable mascara

 

I liked the fact it had 3 different adjustable settings. By twisting the container you can different amounts of mascara in one hit. My favourite setting was number 3 because it gave the most product. I didn’t like the fact that it wasn’t waterproof and tended to smudge by mid or late afternoon of wearing it. The brush applicator is also a bit stiff and the wand a bit short.

Maybelline the falsies volum’ express black drama

 

It does give really long lashes with lots of volume as well. It held my curl for a long time but at the end of the day it smudged a little as well. I like the wand and brush applicator as it went on quite well with not so many clumps.

Kiss Me Volume and Curl Mascara

   

This is my all time favourite holy grail mascara. It really works for me. It holds curl really well – probably the fact that it is waterproof. I think Japanese people make really good cosmetics that work for asian eyes. This gives me really long lashes and volume and it lasts the whole day without smudging and I love the shape of the wand and brush applicator. Probably the only problem is that it is hard to find in western countries or really overpriced as I bought mine from Asia when I was there.

What is your favourite mascara? I’m always looking for new ones to try 🙂
